If Liverpool has to choose between Jadon Sancho, Kylian Mbappe, and Erling Haaland, Emile Heskey picks the England winger every time.

Jadon Sancho, Kylian Mbappe, and Erling Haaland are not only three of the brightest young emerging talents in football, they are currently three of the best footballers on the planet.

Now we are not just talking skills and ability. The three attacking players have the numbers to back up all the hype.

Sancho playing from the wing is not only one of the top scorers, but also a leading assister in the Bundesliga.

Erling Haaland has been a revelation this season. The Norwegian has been scoring for fun in both Austria and Germany this season.

Mbappe is the driving force behind not only PSG, but the French National team too.

However, former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey believes that while all three are prodigious talents and world-beaters, he would pick Sancho.

He told Genting Bet, Heskey admits it may be more of a case of his heart ruling his choice rather than his head.

He said:

“I’d choose Sancho for Liverpool, out of the three.”

“Mbappe is a phenomenal player who keeps on rising and is only going to get better and better.” 

“He’s focused more to keep the consistency going at that age is just phenomenal.”

“It’s difficult because for Liverpool you’d choose a player who was more on the wing than central. But again, Haaland’s goals are a key factor.”

“I’m going to patriotic and say that Sancho would be great, being an England player and an entertaining player as well.” 

“I would say someone like that would be great to get on the wing and terrorize defenses.”

It remains to be seen if Jurgen Klopp will even entertain the idea of messing with his attacking trident. He may focus on other areas to improve his already formidable side.
